US Airways and flying imams

Clarice Feldman
Should U.S. Airways really have to decide between protecting its passengers or fighting frivolous lawsuits? I don't think so. Perhaps Congress ought to make this clear with some new legislation protecting airlines from this nonsense.

The Star Tribune reports

Six Islamic leaders who were removed from a US Airways flight say they'll sue the airline for discrimination. The Council on American-Islamic Relations says it will provide details on the lawsuit tomorrow at a Washington news conference.

Six imams returning to Phoenix from a religious conference in November were taken off a plane in Minneapolis, handcuffed, and questioned.

They had prayed in the airport before the flight, and after they boarded, a passenger who considered them suspicious passed a note to a flight attendant
The story neglects all the suspicious and threatening conduct the flying imams engaged in, but that's the Star Tribune for you.
